for mitt romney to use this as a political thing during the campaign. i think foreign policy should be bipartisan to the extent that is possible, and in a time of tragedy, americans need to rally around -- rally together and not try to use it for political, partisan purposes. we need to dissect it, see what happened and make sure it never happens again. there were recommendations that were made, and secretary clinton accepts all of them. we have to make sure that our diplomats or in places all around the world -- some of the places are very dangerous -- that they are protected. and congress has to do its part. i am troubled that the house has consistently low balled the monies for diplomatic security around the world and is constantly lowball anything to do with diplomacy around the world. moneys that have come out after negotiations between house and senate -- usually the senate had a higher amount of money. but the money that was agreed upon for both was much lower than had been requested. that is troubling. if congress is going to point the finger, we need to put our money where

mitt romney'sleddest son in "the boston globe." he said he wanted to be president less than anyone i've met in my life. if he could have found someone else to take his place, he would have been ecstatic to step aside. does that ring true. >> i will never dispute a son talking about his father. clearly there were times when he was not at all comfortable in making a public case, in particular taking about hisself. that was a good piece in the globe. looking as hi reluctance, there may be something to what tagg said, though he went to a lot of trouble over five years to be president. so i have a bit of doubt about that. it comes from just watching mitt romney, but there was reluctance from him. >> e.j., a lot of folks are scratching their heads after listening that to, maybe you are one of them, too. >> thank you. >>> devastating news for webs sister, new york, two firefighters kid. two other firefighters were also wounded, and police just confirming there is not an active shooter. we've got a live report from the scene right now. amanda, what is the latest you are hearing? >> reporter:

to support mitt romney, to try to defeat president obama. they didn't happen. but at the end of the day, they'd still rather make money than win a political argument. so i think that the republicans are potentially making a mistake, holding out this idea that somehow that's the time to use this leverage. that said, you know, having that paralysis -- and that's what we're in right now -- we're in the middle of political paralysis where there's distrust on both sides. there's no -- there's no -- and if you're in the republicans, politically, i sort of get where they are, they see no win for them. any compromise they make with this president is a political problem for them in their own base, their own political bases. you know, that's why you're not seeing the great tip o'neill/ronald reagan moment here because there's no way voters would actually reward the compromise, at least on the right. >> hey, chuck, this is sam. first of all, it looks beautiful there. secondly, you talked about the bitterness -- >> reporter: it's a little chilly, but i'm not going to dpl complain. >> don't complain. you
